Warner Bros sues Indian studio over 'Harry Potter' copyright

New York, Aug 25 (IANS) Hollywood studio Warner Bros are suing Indian producers in relation to a movie they believe infringes the copyright of the "Harry Potter" franchise.

The Warner Bros have filed a lawsuit against Mumbai-based studio Mirchi Movies, who are set to release a film entitled "Hari Puttar - A Comedy of Terrors". Releasing Sept 12, the film follows the life of a 10-year-old Indian boy who moves to Britain, reports contactmusic.com.

Warner Bros believe the name is too similar to the title character of the hugely popular wizard franchise, whose latest film "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" has been pushed back for release until next year.</
